As a school focused on community, Chandler teams with Partnership for Success! as a program sponsor and partner. This Pasadena public-private partnership helps Pasadena Unified School District students reach their highest potential.
Partnership for Success! gives students in grades five through twelve a five-week summer enrichment program on a private-school campus. Chosen by their principals, students progress through nine summers of a college-prep curriculum that includes math, science, technology and language arts, plus college counseling, SAT preparation, and college-application support.
Over 90% of students return each year, and 100% of students who complete the program graduate from high school. More than 90% of Partnership for Success! graduates advance to college.
Chandler hosts fifth and sixth grade boys, providing daily lunch and access to incredible classroom and recreational facilities that allow students and teachers to work comfortably together.
“Chandler continues to support Partnership for Success! because it’s important to the future of Pasadena, and it works,” noted Chandler Head of School John Finch. “Graduates report that Partnership for Success! changes the trajectory of their lives.”
